Jerry Lee Lewis - The Pilgrim Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • See him wasted on the sidewalk in his jacket and his jeans
  • Wearin' yesterday's misfortunes like a smile
  • Once he had a future full of money love and dreams
  • Which he spent like they was going out of style
  • And he keeps right on a changin' for the better or the worse
  • And searchin' for a shrine he's never found
  • Never knowin' if believin' is a blessin' or a curse
  • Or if the going up is worth to coming down
  • He's a poet he's a picker he's a prophet he's a pusher
  • He's a pilgrim and a preacher and a problem when he's stoned
  • He's a walking contradiction partly truth and partly fiction
  • Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home
  • He has tasted good and evil in your bedrooms and your bars
  • And he's traded in tomorrow for today
  • Runnin' from the devils Lord and reachin' for the stars
  • And losin' all he loved along the way
  • But if this world keeps right on turning for the better or the worse
  • All he ever gets is older and around
  • From the rocking of the cradle to the rolling of the hearse
  • The going up was worth the coming down
  • He's a poet he's a picker...
  • There's lotta wrong directions on that lonely way back home
